Confused about Appleat 14:50 - 18th, November 2020
Last week I read an article on OSNews.com regarding what I would consider a major fault with the mac os and Apple's take on who actually has control over your OS and computer.
Yesterday, every Mac user got a taste of what happens when you don’t actually own the computers you pay a lot of money for. Because Apple wants to control everything you do with the computer you rent from them, and because Apple wants to know everything you do while using the computer you rent from them, a random server somewhere going down meant Mac users couldn’t open their applications anymore.
This pretty much cemented my opinion of Apple and their crazy control over everything. I was completely against buying another mac. Keep in mind that I personally didn't feel this... outage(?)... and I was working on my imac most of the day. I have a pc at home now and the way Windows is now compared to how it was in the 90's, I'm very comfortable using windows on a daily basis. Almost more so than Mac, to the point that I think my next upgrade for the house will be a pc, not a mac. The usual suspects come into play here - gaming being the primary one. But one of the nice things about having an intel mac was always the ability to run windows, either virtualized or bootable.
Now comes the new PPC6 macs as I call them (they are arm based so why not?). At first I was thinking that this ppc6 thing would stop me from wanting a mac strictly because of no windows compatibility but the raw power of the base machines cannot be disregarded. The macbook air, macbook pro 13 and mac mini are all killing it for entry level machines, and sure they can all run ios apps natively now, but most of the real gaming is still on x86.
I'm very curious to see what they do with the pro models of their computers and how they play ball with everything. So I'm either going to go hackintosh or just flat out pc for my upgrade. We'll see.
Whatever the case, the next little while will be interesting to watch for Apple.
